John Mackey, Bobby Deen & Michael Pollan headed to KC in 2013

  • Pollan’s next adventure is in his kitchen.

A cookbook author and three men who want to change the way you eat are part of the early lineup for food writers headed to Kansas City in 2013.

Whole Foods CEO John Mackey and professor Raj Sisodia discuss their book, Conscious Capitalism, on Thursday, January 31. The duo delve into how companies can be successful by creating a culture that values morality and supports employees.

Bobby Deen, one of Paula Deen’s two sons, will be in Kansas City on Monday, February 11, to discuss his latest cookbook, From Mama’s Table to Mine: Everybody’s Favorite Comfort Foods at 350 Calories or Less.

And Michael Pollan returns to Kansas City on Friday, May 10, with his latest book, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation. Pollan is in his own kitchen for this one using earth, wind, fire and water to “transform” raw ingredients into dinner. All three talks are Rainy Day Books events. Tickets are not yet available online.
